Drug Round-up puts 21 behind bars in Tell City

21 people are spending time in jail after a series of narcotic investigations in Tell City.

These arrests stem from an initiative the Tell City Police and Perry County Prosecutor’s Office developed in 2016 to target the influx of methamphetamine and other drugs in Perry County.
